¿Por qué? Pourquoi? VII

I once again ask “Why?” today. You know, since it’s 1:12 a.m. and all.

  1. Why is it that I’m the one who has to get up at 5 a.m. and go to work, but I’m the one Rousseau comes to at 12:30 because he’s having tummy trouble and needs to go outside? Does he not know that the Thriller doesn’t have to get up early?
  2. Why do my students make me want to launch puppies across the Grand Canyon every moment leading up to a performance, but then sing like angels at the concert?
  3. Why can’t Vinnie Pestano and Chris Perez pitch like that all the time?
  4. Why is it so easy to assume we have all the information on a thing, when in fact we have very little? Assumptions can be (and often are) dangerous, especially when entire schools of thought are built on them.
  5. Why is it impossible for me to go back to sleep once I’ve been awakened in the night? I ask this, of course, while Rousseau snores peacefully at my feet.
  6. Why has the school year gone so fast? (And why on earth am I complaining about it?)

Dog is awake again, poor thing. Strap in, cousin. It’s gonna be a long, long night. Oy, warum?

Waarom?

Ummm because if they were angels leading up to a performance they’d be horrible during the performance?? :-P

What’s wrong with Da Hond?
